“Habitat for Humanity is an amazing opportunity for all families.”
Katrina Williams is a dedicated single mother who is making her dreams come true through the Habitat for Humanity program. Katrina holds the position of Lead Pharmacy Tech at HCA Florida, where she showcases her hardworking and caring nature. Her journey is deeply intertwined with her 15-year-old daughter, Ery’kah, a vibrant young lady with a passion for dance, basketball, track, and wrestling.
In her own words, Katrina describes herself as “reliable, responsible, caring, and hardworking.” She strives to set a positive example for her daughter as they navigate life together. Ery’kah, on the other hand, is a bundle of joy – funny, sweet, and immensely caring. Ery’kah’s personality has a magnetic quality that draws people towards her, making her a beloved figure among her peers.
Weekends are a treasure for Katrina and Ery’kah, as they embrace quality time together. Their living situation shifted from solo-renting to sharing accommodations due to rising rental costs. Grateful for a friend’s support, Katrina acknowledges the challenges of sharing space, emphasizing the longing for a place they can truly call their own.
The acceptance into the Habitat for Humanity program was a moment of immense joy and humility for Katrina. “Yes, I did it!” she thought, her eyes welled with tears of happiness upon hearing those words. Encouraging others to volunteer with Habitat, she underlines the life-changing impact of such an opportunity. Katrina envisions a transformed future in a Habitat home – one where she and Ery’kah can proudly claim a space as their own, free from the constraints of sharing and unaffordable rent.
Katrina’s journey reflects the courage to overcome financial obstacles and fears. Her managers’ encouragement led her to apply for the Habitat program, an experience that she will forever cherish. With the support of her managers, family, friends, and volunteers, Katrina is on the path to a stable home, building a brighter future for herself and Ery’kah.
